Army brat Kaydee Wagner gets twitchy if she stays in one place for too long. But when her grandfather needs someone to stay with him for a bit and his home needs a lot of repairs, she steps up to the plate.

Lucky for her, help arrives from their neighbor’s gorgeous grandson, former Army Ranger Leo Reed.

Leo’s desperate to rise above his dark past and enjoy life again. He’s already made a lot of progress, so when the woman he can’t stop thinking about needs a handyman, he volunteers. But after a very...wet incident involving deadly dance moves and a wayward sink hose, their clothes hit the floor faster than a stack of tile.

He doesn’t want forever—that would mean revealing his past, which he’s not ready to do. She only wants right now, because any other option would require sticking around.

And then Kaydee discovers she’s pregnant.

With summer here and the heat making me warm and drowsy, this book hit the spot. It was a nice quick read with simmering chemistry and two down to earth MCs I instantly liked and was rooting for. Loved the feel good vibes and the alternating POVs.

Sweet love story

This was so sweet, maybe too sweet but I liked it. There was no ow/om drama and it had a wonderful grovel scene and an even better epilogue. I loved Lula Belle, the lovestruck livestock too. The hero was really a wonderful guy. He kind of flipped out at the end but he won me back. Th ...more

Kaydee, an Army brat, is not a fan of staying in one place for long. But for her grandpa, yeah, she'd do anything for him. She agrees to return home and help him take care of some necessary repairs. At least she won't have to try and do them alone. Grandpa's neighbor just so happens to have a grands ...more

I loved this story with Leo and Kaydee. Leo live at At Ease and is making the drive to his Grandma's from the ranch to check up on her while his Mom is gone. One weeknight he pops in to find her making out with the neighbor on the couch. A vision they don't make enough bleach for. Kaydee is in the k ...more

3.5 stars!
The Army Ranger's Surprise was a quick, easy to read steamy romance. I read this book very quickly and the thing that I loved about it most is that these two characters start off as really good friends. It was enjoyable to read their romance and connection, and the changes they experienced ...more

Received in exchange for a honest review.
Enjoyed Leo’s story to forgiving himself, letting go and falling in love.
Leo was torturing himself over what happened in his past. He couldn’t let go and blamed himself. He felt that he destroyed everyone who got close to him. He was starting to change but st ...more

By Bette July 03, 2018

YAY! We finally get Leo's story and it's fantastic. This is the fifth book in the Men of At Ease Ranch series but you can read any of them as standalones without a problem. Prior characters and little jokes are referenced so those of us who have read the prior books get an extra little chuckle. Kayd ...more

The woman was a thief. A beautiful, sensual, sexy thief who stole his breath. And his bones.

I have loved Donna Michaels’ Men of At-Ease Ranch since the beginning. It has proven to be a strong series—one with likable characters, deep friendships that come complete with humor, banter and caring, and ...more

By Books and Spoons July 11, 2018

These rangers won my heart with the first story, and it has been one of those series that I have eagerly anticipated for each title to be published. The tales are a perfect mix of tight brotherhood, swoony romance, deep emotions that have brought me to tears, and humor that has made me laugh out lou ...more

By Carma June 21, 2018

The Army Ranger’s Surprise is part of the At-Ease Ranch series by Donna Michaels, but according to the blurb it can be read as a standalone. I have not read any other titles in this series and I can agree that this read pretty well as a standalone. There is some reference as well as interaction with ...more

By Nayab July 19, 2018

I absolutely adore Donna Michaels’ Men of At-Ease Ranch series and the newest book is no exception! The characters are loveable; the interactions between them were fun, flirty and banter-filled.

The pacing was slow at times; pages and pages would go by where it felt like nothing was happening? Like n ...more

This is book 5 in the Men At Ease Ranch series and can absolutely be read as a stand alone book.

By Harlie July 09, 2018

I read a ton of Entangled books and I have loved them all but this series is the one that has stuck with me the most.  I just get it.  Men coming back from horrific situations and not knowing how to deal with it.  The ranch is their safe place when they get back.  They are not judged, talked down to ...more

I’ve really enjoyed following the former Army Ranger buddies of Donna Michaels’ The Men of At Ease Ranch Series. They’ve all struggled to different extents with civilian life especially after the loss of one of their own at the end of their careers.

None has suffered more than Leo Reed. He’s has som ...more

By Brooke July 08, 2018

I requested this book even though I hadn’t read the rest of the series because it said that it could be read as a standalone and although it was easy enough to follow without having read the previous books, I think this is probably a book that works much better if you have read the rest of the serie ...more

By Heather July 18, 2018

This book has both cursing (including f-bombs) and sex. Although this is part of a larger series, it completely stands alone and you do not have to read the others to enjoy this love story.

This story was a seriously sweet story and the happily ever after that Leo deserved. While it didn't quite delv ...more
